Hey St George UPAP hopefuls, I was thinking we could do dinner at Benja Thai and Sushi, it has pretty delicious food, and it's located in Ancestor Square which is right on St G Blvd and Main St. We can try to do an early dinner around 4:30 pm so we can get good sleep and work on any last minute prepping. If you have more time on your hands you can explore the Dixie Rock which is at the top of Main St. And the shops on Main St are pretty sweet. Snow Canyon is a state park 5 mins outside St G, and Zions is about 30 mins from St G. Let me know who's all going to dinner and I can get us reservations😁

Hey thank you for coordinating this! 4:30 might be a bit early for me as I was planning on getting in a hike at Zion to ease the nerves a bit, but will check in as this gets closer. The food and opportunity to meet y'all both sound amazing!

Awe same, my flight lands around 1pm and with luggage and rental car I probably won't make it. Anyone staying at the Marriott at University Park that would want to grab dinner??

Yeah I think 5:30 or 6 would be great and may even allow more people to attend it looks like 🙂 

Can’t wait to meet everyone!

11/13,1:30 at Ishtar Grill in Millcreek would probably be cutting it close for me too. I'm not staying at the Marriott, but am staying closer to that area. I could meet up starting anywhere between 2 to 3:30 pm for an afternoon snack or something on 11/13 for the SLC interview. Can't do a dinner, but willing to meetup with anyone who can go a bit earlier! @JK2020 @Thehopefulone

Maybe Pizza Nono?: 925 900 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84105?

Not interviewing the 13/14 but the Pie is right off campus and quite good 🙂 Very popular among the students

1320 E 200 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84102

Thanks for the recommendation @amandaaa22!

Random question: My main mode of travel during my trip will be Uber and I haven't visited SLC before so I'm unfamiliar with their availability in this city, especially in the morning around 6:30am. Does anyone have any problems with available drivers when planning to uber to the interview in the past?

Thanks in advance!

I was on the interview waitlist (the bottom half) and was notified today that I have been invited to interview on the 14th! I'm so surprised and so excited!

They emailed me today! When I first was put in the interview waitlisted I asked for more information and all they said they could tell me was there was about 30 on the list and that I was ranked on the bottom half. They said they couldn't tell me my exact ranking.

I was offered an interview for November 22nd! I saw a few others that posted about the same date. Is anyone interested in meeting up beforehand? Maybe if you are local meeting the weekend prior?

I'll be interviewing on 22nd also. I live in the area and can meet up any time.  Anyone else interested?

I have a group chat going on with Group Me for those interviewing the 21st and 22nd! I am interviewing on the 21st. Send me a personal message with your phone numbers and I'll text you  back with the invite 🙂 Also those who will be in the area are welcome to join the chat too for our meet ups

So I’ve been out of school for a while, however I took A&P about two years ago for to go back to PA school. My approach was to purchase the barons anatomy and physiology study guide and complete the book before the interview. I was notified of my interview on the 6th of October for the 14th of November. I focused on the really important topics like the skeletal system, nervous, muscles, endocrine, respiratory etc....I spent about 4-6 hours a day reviewing and I do work full time, and I have kids. I don’t know how detailed the exam will be but I honestly tried my best. Some say it’s easy while others say it’s hard...both are relative to the knowledge of the test taker etc. some chapters such as the reproductive I’m still really shaky in. But I’ll continue to prepare right up to the day before my interview. I hope that helped

I've heard from current students that the test doesn't hold much weight, that apparently they only use it as a tiebreaker if they can't decide between two applicants.

I’d love to go but I’ll be driving in around 6 pm so I’d be late 😕

I would have to agree. It is difficult to compare the test results of someone that was at the top of their class 7 yrs ago vs someone that took it last year with a much poorer grade. Perhaps the latter would have the better test results, but not do as well in PA school. I'm sure the faculty is well aware of this. They probably use it as a benchmark for how far back they should allow prerequisites, or also how they might group study partners or emphasize certain material in class.
